Lizz Wright and Raul Midon

Singer-songwriters Lizz Wright and Raul Midon join forces to present an intoxicating collection of contemporary spirituals that deftly span the genres of jazz, R&B, soul and gospel. On the heels of a successful European tour, the two masters of song share their effortlessly magnetic stage presence with stateside audiences in 2013.

To date, Raul Midón has three major label records under his belt; State of MindA World Within A World, and Synthesis.He has been featured in recent documentaries including the acclaimed Bill Withers biopic Still Bill, the Herbie Hancock documentary Possibilities, and a film on the life of legendary producer Arif Mardin All My Friends Are Here, in which he declares that Midón is the only artist he ever signed to a label. His musical collaborators include Jason Mraz, Marcus Miller, and Roberta Flack. Deemed an “eclectic adventurist” by People Magazine, Midón contributes something honest and upredictable to the musical landscape.

Lizz Wright has been the recipient of nonstop critical acclaim and ever-increasing audiences ever since her Verve debut, Salt, in 2003. But she’s confounded expectations along the way about what should be expected of an artist who’s known for topping the jazz charts but is far from most people’s idea of a traditional jazz singer. “The funny thing about the transition from only gospel to jazz is that I felt that jazz had a familiar sacredness to it. In all of my adventures in music, I’ve been drawn in by sparks of the familiar inside of the unfamiliar. For example, when I first heard what people were calling the blues, I was taken aback, because I had heard that sound all my life. That was how the mothers sang in church.” Wright continues her genre-defying journey with her latest album Fellowship, a nod to her roots in gospel on the one hand and her gospel of eclecticism on the other.
